Near the Yasukuni shrine in Tokyo, a Japanese war veteran stands in front of a memorial to the 5000 Kamikaze pilots who died during WW2. Sixty nine years after the end of the war, the idea of suicide bombing has a whole new meaning.

Minute of silence observed at the (geopolitically) controversial Yasukuni Shrine in Tokyo, Japan. Today marks 69 years since the defeat of Japan in WW2.

A Fukushima evacuee demonstrates his homemade radiation dosimeter at a community centre in Japan. Using his Ipad he links his radiation measurements to Safecast.org who map radiation across Japan.

 “The price of dosimeters shot up right after the disaster, so we decided to make our own. We measured the places in our house and we realized that the radiation was highest close to the windows, so we washed the windows….We took dosimeter to our parents houses, and found they had much higher levels of radiation because they were older houses - built of wood and straw – so they absorbed more radiation.”

Talking about Chernobyl with a Fukushima evacuee in a café in Tokyo. I showed her photographs of an evacuee who I met near the border of the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, Ukraine.

Sitting on a tatami floor, a man holds mushrooms he gathered from the forests near his Onsen-hotel [Хот-Спрингс баня] in Fukushima prefecture.  “Life has been so much harder for me after the nuclear accident…” he says, explaining how the stigma of Fukushima has damaged his business, “people used to come here to fish in the rivers and collect wild mushrooms, but I’ve only had one booking for mushroom picking this year”. 

If our glasses of Sake on the table were replaced with vodka moonshine [самогон], this could be Chernobyl.

Two Shinto priests stand outside a temple in Odaka town in #Fukushima, Japan, during the annual Horse Festival. Like other towns in this region, Odaka was contaminated by the 2011 nuclear accident and remains largely abandoned, with residents living in temporary accommodation across Japan. Currently you are only allowed to visit Odaka during the day and have to leave at night. This is to prevent residents from moving back to their contaminated homes, and to discourage thieves from looting the abandoned houses. Compared to Chernobyl however, illegal activity is very low in Fukushima.

A mounted samurai photographed at the annual horse festival in Minamisoma in Fukushima, Japan. Riders compete to catch falling ribbons fired into the sky by fireworks. The traditional event is highly dangerous - several riders were thrown from their horse and taken to hospital by ambulance.The festival was cancelled in 2011 due to the impact of the triple disaster, and fears about radiation.
